North America and Pelican Nebulae

North America and Pelican nebulae was taken with my TMB-92 at f/5.5 apo refractor, an IDAS LPS-V3 filter and the Hutech modified Canon 6D. Each is a stack of 2 x 3 min exposures at ISO 3200 combined in PS CS-6. Note the absence of significant noise even at this high ISO. Great camera.
